Pets In CarDo not leave kids or pets in a parked car.

Pets and children are particularly vulnerable to high-heat conditions. Every year, children and pets suffer and die when left unattended in parked vehicles.

Did You Know:

  • On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked vehicle can soar to 120 degrees in just minutes
  • On a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes — even with windows cracked open.

Think twice before ever leaving a child or a pet in a parked vehicle, even for just a moment. Heat kills kids and pets.

If you see a pet or a child left in a parked car, immediately call the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station at (310) 855-8850.
